Akash Chopra, RP Singh, and Sachin Tendulkar were involved in friendly banter on Twitter. RP Singh was doing commentary during the match between Joburg Super Kings and Pretoria Capitals in the SA20 League. He recalled an incident where Sachin Tendulkar was dismissed in a very strange manner.
RP Singh was batting with Sachin Tendulkar when he hit a straight drive that deflected the bowler and Sachin was run out on the nonstriker’s end where he was short of the crease. RP said that he went to apologize to the little master immediately after.
Akash Chopra took this banter to Twitter and apologized to Sachin for that banter in the commentary box. Sachin replied to his tweet saying that that was the only time the straight drive was not his favorite stroke.
“For once, the straight drive wasn’t my favorite shot! RP Singh bhaiyya toh batting karte samay bhi wicket lete the! (RP Singh used to pick wickets even when he was batting)” Tendulkar tweeted on Friday.
